cana brava: a bamboo (Bambusa vulgaris) There are approximately 2,000 species of bamboo. It comes smaller than a little finger and larger than a foot in diameter; it possesses incredible tensile strength and is used in thousands of widely varied applications, from a food and clothing source to the construction of instruments and furniture. As an ensemble, CANABRAVA NOW strives to emulate bamboo by being diverse, resilient, flexible, enduring, elegant, beautiful, unique, communal, bounteous, eternally relevant and ecologically sound. Featuring Douglas R. Ewart, composer/woodwinds/percussion, Mankwe Ndosi voice, Lucy Strauss viola, Matthew Ariaratnam guitar, and Lisa Cay Miller piano.
Curated by Douglas R. Ewart, co-produced by the NOW Society and Coastal Jazz and Blues Society.
